A 1946 St Louis Cardinals World Series program played at Sportsman's Park is worth about $175. - $250. in excellent - near/mint condition. After you get the program signed by Stan Musial it will lower the value of the program as a collectible, and the bulk of the value will rely on the signature. The signature will be considered as a flaw in the condition of the program. A Stan Musial signed 1946 St Louis Cardinals World Series program is worth about $40. - $75. If the signature is not authenticated it could sell at half the market value or less. As with all collectibles, condition is the most important factor of all providing that the item is authentic. With programs/scorecards the slightest flaws will bring the price down significantly. An exceptional mint condition scorecard could sell for more.

Common flaws would be staining, foxing (yellowing), fading, creases, rips, loose pages, cracked binding, and writing on the cover. Un-scored programs will generally sell at a higher price than a scored program but sometimes it doesn't effect value. The over all condition, and how well the cover displays will.
